Maersk offers single window cold chain solutions to keep your cargo fresh
Transporting temperature-sensitive goods is usually more complex than moving regular dry cargo. Not only do you have to think about reaching your destinations on time, but you also need to make sure that your products remain fresh throughout. Every year, a huge quantity of perishable goods such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, meat, and medical drugs or vaccines gets wasted because of the unavailability of on-time storage and sufficient distribution capabilities.
It’s no wonder, then, that cold chain logistics is a growing industry that requires special attention.
In fact, the global cold chain logistics market was estimated to be worth almost USD 160 billion in 2018. Analysts expect this figure to rise to USD 585 billion by 2026. Despite COVID-19’s effects on economies worldwide, the demand for cold chain solutions has increased during the past year. The jump is a result of consumers’ growing demand on refrigerated and packaged foods, fruits and vegetables, and medicines.
To keep up with market needs, your business requires an unbroken cold chain that takes your cargo from its origin to destination, and handles all the transport, storage, and distribution processes for you.
That’s what we do. As an integrated logistics partner, we give an end-to-end cold chain logistics solution with a single point of contact. We can take care of your cargo right from your warehouse until it reaches your partners across the world in perfect condition. Whether you are entering a new market, need a leaner supply chain, predictable costs, operational transparency, or a storage solution -we have got you covered.
